Create an image overlay, which comes in different styles.

Usage

This component can be applied to an image, an anchor or text. Just add the .uk-overlay to a container element and the .uk-overlay-area class to a <div> to create the overlay itself.

Example

Markup

<!-- This is a div with an overlay -->
<div class="uk-overlay">
    <img src="" alt="">
    <div class="uk-overlay-area"></div>
</div>

<!-- This is an anchor with an overlay -->
<a class="uk-overlay" href="">
    <img src="" alt="">
    <div class="uk-overlay-area"></div>
</a>

Overlay area content

By default, the overlay displays an icon. But you can also enter your own content, like text or a button. Just add the .uk-overlay-area-content class to a <div> element inside the overlay area.

Example

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consetetur sadipscing elitr.

<div class="uk-overlay">
    <img src="" alt="">
    <div class="uk-overlay-area">
        <div class="uk-overlay-area-content">...</div>
    </div>
</div>

Overlay toggle

To toggle the overlay by hovering the area around it, like a caption for example, just add the .uk-overlay-toggle class.

Example

Markup

<figure class="uk-overlay-toggle">
    <div class="uk-overlay">
        <img src="" alt="">
        <div class="uk-overlay-area"></div>
    </div>
    <figcaption>...</figcaption>
</figure>

Add the .uk-overlay-caption class to create an overlay with a text caption.

</a>

Overlay with thumbnails

You can also apply an overlay to a thumbnail from the Thumbnail component. To toggle the overlay by hovering the thumbnail’s caption or frame, just add the .uk-overlay-toggle class.

Example

Markup

<a class="uk-thumbnail uk-overlay-toggle" href="">
    <div class="uk-overlay">
        <img src="" alt="">
        <div class="uk-overlay-caption">...</div>
    </div>
</a>
